Ladies and gentlemen, the first Spring Training game of the 2014 season has been set for February 27th.
If you live in the Mesa/Chandler area then you need to be sure to swing by the new ball park. I drove by sometime in late July when the new ball park was still being assembled and it looked absolutely beautiful. They had a huge poster board of what the park would look like when it was finished and it really made me think of home.
It’s like they took Wrigleyville and built a small piece of it to Mesa, Arizona. So when Spring Training finally arrives, it’ll feel like I’m right at home but just in warmer weather.
Now the Chicago Cubs have announced on the official website that single game tickets will go on sale this Saturday, January 11th for single game tickets.
